Alpine ibex (Capra ibex ibex) - The ibex, symbol species of Gran Paradiso National Park, lives in the plains at high altitude and on the rocky valley walls. The alpine ibex was threatened with extinction at the end of the 19th century and it survived only in the valleys that today make up the Gran Paradiso National Park. The ibex is the object of particular attention and protection by the park and many research and conservation projects have
been dedicated exclusively to it.
